Storyline

Sometimes the greatest journey is the distance between two people. Up until now Monique has always been able to give her clients exactly what they've wanted. Thomas has always been exactly what everyone else has expected. But tonight Thomas' curiosity is going to get the better of him while demanding of Monique the one thing she's reluctant to offer. Throughout the course of the evening the tension, emotional and sexual, builds as the two characters miss each other on the surface, whilst underneath it all, they connect in a way neither had expected or hoped for. In a society where true honesty is a rare commodity, Monique and Thomas take the audience on a funny, poignant and brutal journey of self-examination. Written by Scramble Productions

Absolute pleasure to watch.
12 June 2009 | by See all my reviews

Great acting and a great script made this film into something special. One of those films were you walk out after watching it and you feel you really got your moneys worth. It reminds me of Hunter Richards film London with Jason Statham and Jessica Biel. Both these movies explores the impact strangers can have on each other. "The best conversation you will ever have is with a stranger." Anel Alexander and James Alexander pulls the the viewers in right from the start and do not let go till the next day. It is not one of those movies where you know were it is heading in that way it creates a type of suspense. And keeps the audience griped right to the end.

Discreet is definitely not everybody's cup of tee but if you like a film that portrays people in the real world this movie was made for you.
